On Sunday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard announced an end to unrest fomented by “foreign enemies” and arrested former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for “inciting unrest against the government.” The Iranian regime’s claims ring hollow, as Ahmadinejad was always notably hostile to the countries accused of fomenting these protests (Saudi Arabia, Israel, UK and US). Ahmadinejad had attempted to run for president last year but he was banned from participating by the Ayatollah Khamenei’s Guardian Council.

The 2018 budget proposal of Iran’s recently-reelected “reform” President Hassan Rouhani included plans to give billions of dollars to organizations that make up Iran’s hardline religious establishment. The budget also proposed cutting cash subsidies to millions of citizens, raising fuel prices and privatizing public schools. Paired with the rising prices of eggs and other food staples, people around the country especially the poor and working-class felt betrayed and demanded that both the president and the country’s supreme cleric step down.

Many alternative news outlets have claimed that the protests were just another CIA-sponsored “Color Revolution”, which is possible but these most recent demonstrations have followed a different pattern from those of the past. These were started by working middle-class Iranians in the east of the country, far from the elites of Tehran and they spread to the rest of the country almost overnight, with the help of a free messaging app called Telegram, which has been used to spread messages about upcoming protests and to share images from demonstrations.

In a country of 80 million people, the Telegram app has 40 million users. Telegram was launched in 2013 by two Russian brothers who also founded VK, Russia’s largest social networking platform. Telegram boasts security features like self-destructing messages and secret chat functions and users can create groups for up to 50,000 people.

The Iranian regime blocked off access to Telegram last week but the people there have become tech-savvy over the years, in order to overcome the massive Internet censorship and many know how to set up Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to circumvents government control.

  • I guess that Alexandra Bruce so hard-corded support Duck Trump that she will even side-track the realities and find a way to states otherwise truth. disappointed is put mildly, specifically the tax cut, the walls, the deporting of immgrants, instigates the wars against Iran, North Korean, China and Russia. Cabinet members equipped with 1% elites. Ms. Bruce willing turns a blind eyes.

  • The outbreaks were virtually simultaneous indicating organisation and were quickly snuffed out by Russian knowhow.

  • Good take by James Corbett:
    We need to talk about the Iran protests
    “Are these protests in Iran spontaneous, or are they the result of another regime change operation? This week on The Corbett Report James explores the past, present and future of US and Israeli involvement in Iran, and the attempts to foment unrest in the country.”

    • Thanks. Yes, my site is not infected and nothing is wrong with my links. I’d received a few complaints so I called my mass email service. They said Microsoft has a bug that is causing it to see all links within my newsletters as dangerous and that their engineers were working on a fix with Microsoft.

      One of my Gmail accounts sent the newsletter to spam and others had similar complaints..

  • Why would Rouhani follow the same neoliberal policies of austerity and privatization that has collapsed the western economy rather than the successful eastern alliance system?

      • It’s superficial! What Trump wants US to believe. Send in the jackals! Overthrow the government on these pretenses like Libya, Ukraine, and attempt on Syria. Not FK’s usual quality! Disappointing

        • It’s never just that simple as a president, present or past. I remember when Iran was fairly free, when the women wore Mini skirts …We must come to terms with the facts, when Obama and Hillary killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people took down Libya for example it was okay. President Trump has killed no one so far, and even if he does, it’s just impossible to think it’s his decision. This is the turning point in the learning of what stands before us, it’s not politics anymore, what we face as a country is far more hideous than we want to admit.

    • This is only a partial analysis! Literal and superficial! CIA and MOSSAD organizing and financing a weakness !! Did this in ‘53 with Mossadeq. Very disappointed in this post. Partial. Misleading
